You really need to ask that in a forum? You realize all we're going to do is google that for you, right?

If you're trying to overclock it, I suggest you don't simply based on the fact you won't even search for s--- yourself.

I had no idea what I am doing i.e. who is recieving/seeing my questions. So I am sorry if it has caused you to waste time. I guess this type community is not for me.

There are several regional Medion web sites.

What country did you buy this Medion computer in?

Quote the serial number on the label on the back of the case.

If you go here
- and type in the serial number, there are downloads for your model including a bios update that has no info about whether it enables you to use faster cpus, and a generic Medion system manual
- and supply the MD350 or MD919 model number to search with there are articles and specs:
What mboard answer is MD3500 in both cases, yet the specs say MD3000.

However ther's no info there about max cpus for the MD3500 mboard, or any manual for it.

This web page
Says MD3500 is actually the MSI MS-6513 model
Also says this mboard was used in the Medion MD919 and MD350 models

It's a MSI OEM only motherboard - there is no retail MS-6513 model - there is no support for this mboard on the MSI web site - MSI no longer supports their older mboards in any case.

Quick Guide (manual) for MS-6513

That says it supports up to 2.2ghz P4 478 pin cpus, models that use a 100mhz or 133mhz cpu core speed, and the mboard uses DDR 200mhz or DDR 266mhz ram. You probably need all DDR 266mhz ram to support the faster cpu speeds.

No futher info about max cpus found.

If you already have a 1.8ghz cpu, a 2.2ghz isn't much of a boost in speed

I'm guessing this mboard has the same main chipset as
MSI 845 Ultra-C
(supports DDR 200mhz and 266mhz ram, no faster; ATA 100 max hard drive burst speed; one of the Brookdale series of main chipsets)
Cpu support list for MSI 845 Ultra-C

However, the bios version of your mboard would have to support recognizing cpus faster than 2.2ghz - there is no info I have been able to find about that - there's no guarantee cpus faster than 2.2ghz will work with your mboard, even if you obtain one of the specific models listed (click on the blue highlighted link at the beginning of the line).
